Light sheet microscopy in combination with tissue clearing enables 3D visualization of intact rodent brains and even an entire mouse body at cellular and subcellular level. In this workshop, we will introduce you to large-scale 3D fluorescence imaging with the brand-new UltraMicroscope Blaze – the first fully automated light sheet microscope for large or multiple samples. With cutting-edge light sheet optics, the microscope operates as a virtual microtome which performs section-free high-resolution 3D imaging. You will learn how light sheet imaging enables you to obtain an unbiased view at large samples such as cleared brains or brain organoids, from neural networks down to subcellular details, at an accelerated pace.
